OUR VALUES >

The Parish values which we as parishioners uphold should be based on the Word of God, the teachings of the Church and our Ampleforth Benedictine heritage. Specifically, we should be a community :

  • in which prayer and worship are at the centre of our lives,
  • which is welcoming and open to all,
  • which is forgiving and is not judgemental
  • which is open to change, led by the Holy Spirit,
  • in which we all share responsibility for the mission of the church,
  • in which we each use our gifts for the benefit of everyone,
  • in which the spirit and joy of the Good News is visibly present in all our actions,
  • in which we respect and value each individual,
  • in which we foster the unity of the Christian churches and the building of good relations with people of other faiths.

     WORD OF LIFE:

    Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Mt 26:41) 

    Jesus often urged people to be watchful. ‘Watching’ for him means never letting ourselves be overcome by spiritual sleep. It means always being ready to welcome the will of God, knowing how to discern its signs in everyday life. Above all it means being able to see difficulties and sufferings in the light of God’s love. Watchfulness and prayer cannot be separated because prayer is indispensable for overcoming trials. The fragility of human nature (‘the flesh is weak’) can be conquered by the strength coming from the Spirit.
